Among those arrested by the troops of the 401 Special Force of the Nigeria Army was a 75 yrs-old Ugba Lorlumun, the chief priest to late Benue warlord Terwase Gana. The dreaded shrine of the notorious Benue militia group where human parts are used for charm was also razed down during the operation. The militia group has been responsible for the spate of kidnapping activities that have been going on in Benue.

Earlier in the week the Nigerian military spokesman John Eneche in a statement announced that the Army killed three suspected bandits and arrested four others in a security operation that took place during the weekend. According to a Military spokesman, the operation took place on Saturday in the villages of Tomatar Ugba and Kundi in Benue State.

The Troops stationed nearby received a distress call from local vigilante members about an ongoing attack by suspected bandits on Tsehombe-Adaka village. The gallant troops quickly stormed the area and engaged the bandits in a shootout. The suspect fled after the soldiers gunned down three members of the group.  Items recovered from them including guns, ammunition, military camouflage uniforms, and narcotics among others.
